Ceremony & Reception Venues
St. Nicholas Abbey provides an unforgettable backdrop for weddings in Barbados. From beautiful gardens and verdant green lawns to our elegant rum bond and terrace overlooking a deep gully filled with towering palms, our dramatic natural and historic backdrops will create a unique setting for your special day.
Couples are welcomed to hold a daytime wedding ceremony and reception during weekday operating hours. Although regular visitors to the plantation will be present, these daytime weddings can be very intimate events set against St. Nicholas Abbey’s beautiful natural setting, making them an ideal option for destination weddings and those who prefer a smaller affair.
For large-scale weddings, the Croquet Lawn provides incredible ‘wow factor’. Nestled amongst swaying sugar cane fields and fringed by mature trees, it overlooks the front gardens and incredible floodlit façade of the great house. Typically, large weddings are held on Saturday evenings when St. Nicholas Abbey is closed to visitors.
While wedding guests are welcomed to tour the great house (based on size of wedding party), it is not available as a venue for ceremonies or receptions. It can also provide a beautiful backdrop for wedding party photographs.
